eclipse – Installing Intel x86 Atom System Images offline (manually) for Android

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment


I want to install the Intel x86 Atom System Image because my emulator speed is too slow. Each time I tried to install it from the Android sdk manager I failed getting this message:-

Nothing was installed.

I went to the Intel site and downloaded it manually and then followed the instructions to install it. But when I create a new AVD I don’t see the Intel atom option in the CPU/ABI menu.

Does anyone know what the problem is?
